Mustard-Crusted Salmon Recipe

Mustard-Crusted Salmon Recipe

OUR DAUGHTER sent us whole salmon for Christmas one year, so I searched the web and found this recipe. I have served this with a wild rice pilaf, and a green vegetable. With these colors, it makes a lovely presentation. --Judy Wilson, Sun City West, Arizona
